Lol­lipop lady sacked over top­less photo

Sunday Sport - - FRONT PAGE - By CLAIRE STEPHENS news@ sun­daysport. co. uk

PART- time coun­cil worker Eve Met­calfe claims she lost her cov­eted job as a lol­lipop lady just for flash­ing her boobs.

Eve, 72, bared her mam­maries on a dat­ing site “for older peo­ple” in a bid to at­tract a man back into her life.

But she reck­ons her bosses were ap­palled when they came across the web­site, saw Eve’s flesh pho­tos and im­me­di­ately SACKED her.

Eve, who worked for a coun­cil in the West Mid­lands which can­not be named for le­gal rea­sons, told Sun­day Sport: “I’m re­ally up­set about this.

“I was wid­owed in my 40s and out of re­spect to my late hus­band, Les, and our two chil­dren, I de­cided to forgo a love life for a while.

“But when I reached my late 60s I re­alised I re­ally missed the in­ti­macy and fun of a grown- up re­la­tion­ship.

“It’s not the eas­i­est thing to do, I dis­cov­ered, but then I was shown how to use the in­ter­net and signed up for a dat­ing agency.

X- rated

“Some of the pic­tures other peo­ple put up are X- rated so I thought I had to keep up with that, to be in with a chance of find­ing some­one.

“That’s why I posted a photo of my boo­bies. They’re still in pretty good nick for some­one of my age. The pic was never meant to of­fend any­one.”

On los­ing her lol­lipop lady role, Eve said: “I’m gut­ted. I’ll miss the smiles on all those kid­dies’ faces.”

A spokes­men for the un­named coun­cil said the or­gan­i­sa­tion would not com­ment on in­di­vid­ual cases, but added: “We do have rules that re­late to bring­ing the coun­cil’s name into dis­re­pute.”

END OF THE ROAD: Eve lost prized job af­ter post­ing pic of boobs on dat­ing site
